Pop Metal Mix

I am trying to make a pop metal mix for a party this weekend. I would really like to limt it to campy hair metal/glam metal with decent pop sensability (i.e no early Metallica, Guns 'n Roses, etc). The quintesential example, Twisted Sister, “I Wanna Rock.” Also looking for tracks like Ratt, 'Round and Round"; Motley Crue “Girls, Girls, Girls”*; even the occasional power ballad or pseudo metal, like "Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again”

*i realize among some, the Crue was not pure camp. this probably goes for each of these bands.

Maybe Stryper? :confused:

too religious and too lame

Lita Ford, Vixen, Quiet Riot?

Lita Ford, Quite Riot thank you

“Cum on Feel the Noize” and “Kiss Me Deadly.” This is exactly what I’m talking about.

Let me clear something up. By excluding the likes of early Metallica (And Justice for All and before) and GNR, I intended to exclude groups that I think were somehow more legitimate and less a novelty. This is purely subjective and I don’t want to argue the point., I am just trying to give context to my request.

Dokken, AC/DC? Would Billy Idol fit in there at all? (Check out other songs by the groups if the one doesn’t suit your purpose, btw.)

Def Leppard “Rock of Ages”
Accept “Balls to the Wall”
AC/DC lots
Alice Cooper “Hey Stooped”
Europe “Final Countdown”

Alice Cooper Poison

Twisted Sister’s latest hit last year…“O Come All Ye Faithful”

Also, Anthrax and Public Enemy Bring the Noise. Maybe also I’m The Man by Anthrax?


Billy would fit, Dokken blows and AC/DC is gettting too close to the Metallica/GNR exclusion in my mind.


Slip in some Spinal Tap and see if anybody notices. :smiley:

yup, I think so. remember, I can’t see youtube now, so my question will seem redundant, but what was there pop opus?

PE and Anthrax (specifcially PE) definitely fall under the Mettalica/GNR exclusion. Then again, I’m a criminal, rhyme animal.

Aha! How about the Scorpions as well? Would Aerosmith fit in there in your opinion or not? ETA: For Cinderella I linked Nobody’s Fool. Also, for Scorpions Rock You Like a Hurricane and Send Me An Angel.

Scorpions, maybe, refresh my memory. I am one of the few folks I know with an appreciation of trash rock who thinks Aerosmith blows, save a few songs I’ve long since tired of (I’m thinking Toys in the Attic, Sweet Emotion, Dream On), but for everyone of those there is a gap commercial or a movie soundtrack.

Nobody’s Fool (for whole bean)
